Tater Tot Trot
Prizes are distributed the day of the race. If you are unable to stay for the awards ceremony, please visit the registration table. If you do not receive your prize the day of the race, your prize must be picked up in person at Sterman Masser Inc. (2 Fearnot Rd, Sacramento, PA) before July 11, 2022 or it will be forfeited.
Sterman Masser, Inc. is excited to host Hegins Valley’s 7th Annual Hot Potato 5K Run/Fun Walk, which will again include the 6th Annual Tater Tot Trot for kids ages 12 and under. It is one of SMI’s core beliefs that community involvement is essential for the success and continued growth of the Hegins Valley community. In addition, one of our basic corporate commitments is: “To enhance the lives in our community by being the potato products company of choice." To fulfill these beliefs, we have been searching for a way to enhance our community in a larger way. The establishment of this race in 2013 has created what we hope will be a long-standing tradition while promoting a healthy lifestyle for our community.
With that in mind, the Tri-Valley Youth Activities Fund was established in 2015, a non-profit 501c(3) charitable organization. The purpose of the TVYAF is: "To enhance the quality of life for all members of our community and surrounding areas by promoting, restoring and constructing the infrastructure needed to attract and retain the best and brightest so that the vitality of our region is sustained for generations to come." The TVYAF board awarded over $90,000 in grant monies raised from 2014 to 2018 to Tri-Valley youth and children associations.
In 2019, the TVYAF board took another step forward in their mission by purchasing the former Fearnot Assemby of God church builiding and gym facility, establishing the Mountainside Community Center. Proceeds from the 2019 and the upcoming 2020 race will go to refurbishing and maintaining this facility to help provide additional practice space for many of the youth organizations in our area. The board will continue to look at ways to expand the use of Mountainside, benefitting all members of our community.
